This practical new guide to designing control systems gives readers a virtual experienceù into the complex engineering problems that may occur during the design and development process. This book gives engineers guidance in their journey to obtain a greater understanding of the thought processes involved in designing and developing successful control systems for radar, flight control, and several other applications. This constructive new resource takes engineers through various phases of project development. Clear examples and case studies are presented throughout demonstrating various management styles. Readers discover a variety of challenges that could occur during actual projects. This book represents a unique contribution to the technical literature on control system design by illustrating principles in the language of control engineering with copious figures. It presents methodical procedures for setting up simulation models used for integrating controls systems with hardware in order to reduce errors.

Conventional public management techniques in industrial management projects are often insufficient because they cannot respond or adapt to the dynamism of modern and global markets. This guide shows how to overcome these problems by using project management techniques that expedite industrial development in regional, national, and global settings. Using real-world examples and a systems approach, the author provides a project management model that accounts for all critical interfaces in industrial development projects. He explores every aspect of project planning and organization, as well as cultural and human resource issues. Key areas discussed include how to: * Schedule and control projects * Conduct and evaluate project feasibility studies * Select a project manager and staff the project * Secure the best experts for various project functions * Expedite transfer of industrial technology from developed to developing nations Coverage of budgeting and cash-flow analysis promotes understanding of the cost aspects of projects. Readers are shown how to use the Critical Path Method and Program Evaluation and Review Techniques to streamline project scheduling. They also find out how to use learning curve analysis to evaluate project performance. Guidelines on managing multinational projects are supplemented with case studies that illustrate successful industrial development in different countries. Appendices list numerous research, industrial, and economic resources, as well as United Nations information sources. Managing Industrial Development Projects paves the way for successful outcomes in countries that need them most. It is a valuable reference for practitioners, public administrators, and national policy makers, as well as students in industrial engineering, industrial administration, engineering management, and public administration programs.

This book presents an analysis of the dynamics and the complexity of new product development projects which are organized according to the concept of concurrent engineering. The approach of the authors includes both a theoretical and an empirical treatment of the topic, based on the theory of design structure matrices. Readers will discover diverse perspectives and mathematical models, as well as an extensive discussion of two case studies.

The subject of this book is the control of software engineering. The rapidly increasing demand for software is accompanied by a growth in the number of products on the market, as well as their size and complexity. Our ability to control software engineering is hardly keeping pace with this growth. As a result, software projects are often late, software products sometimes lack the required quality and the productivity improvements achieved by software engineering are insufficient to keep up with the demand This book describes ways to improve software engineering control. It argues that this should be expanded to include control of the development, maintenance and reuse of software, thus making it possible to apply many of the ideas and concepts that originate in production control and quality control. The book is based on research and experience accumulated over a number of years. During this period I had two employers: Eindhoven University of Technology and Philips Electronics. Research is not a one-man activity and I would like to thank the following persons for their contributions to the successful completion of this project. First and foremost my Ph. D. advisers Theo Bemelmans, Hans van Vliet and Fred Heemstra whose insights and experience proved invaluable at every stage. Many thanks are also due to Rob Kusters and Fred Heemstra for their patience in listening to my sometimes wild ideas and for being such excellent colleagues.

The continued growth of emerging nations depends largely on the development of their built infrastructures and communities. Roads, dams, bridges, hospitals, schools, and housing are all examples of the built environment that impacts economic improvements in the developing world. Decision Support for Construction Cost Control in Developing Countries explores how the construction industry contributes to a nation’s GDP and the related cost issues and proposed cost reduction solutions for construction projects and initiatives in developing regions. Emphasizing the role of decision support systems for reducing and managing the costs associated with construction projects, this title is an essential reference source for civil engineers, business and engineering managers, project managers, researchers, and professionals in the construction industry.

Developing countries in the tropics have different natural conditions and different institutional and financial situations to industrialized countries. However, most textbooks on highway engineering are based on experience from industrialized countries with temperate climates, and deal only with specific problems. Road Engineering for Development (published as Highway and Traffic Engineering in Developing Countries in its first edition) provides a comprehensive description of the planning, design, construction and maintenance of roads in developing countries. It covers a wide range of technical and non-technical problems that may confront road engineers working in this area. The technical content of the book has been fully updated and current development issues are focused on. Designed as a fundamental text for civil engineering students this book also offers a broad, practical view of the subject for practising engineers. It has been written with the assistance of a number of world-renowned specialist professional engineers with many years experience in Africa, the Middle East, Asia and Central America.
